Just a little tired...

We survived our second "drive through the night" trip.  After 500 plus miles, we are home from Long Beach Island, NJ.  And as usual, had a blast and wished just a few more days!  There are not enough hours in the day to do all the fun things we wanted to do.  We did, however, have lots of fun on the beach, playing cornhole, jumping in rain puddles, 2nd annual family shoot, and even a little flip cup with the adults!
Flip cup.... lots of fun and so many laughs!
Max and Claire know when mommy and daddy stay up late having too much fun....they always decide to wake up as early as possible the next morning!  They didn't sleep past 6am one morning.  At home it's not a big deal, because usually it is just me.... but this week there was a minimum of eight other people in the house.  
Love this! Daddy's girl!
walking down the beach with Grandma!
Max wanted to play cornhole too!
can you tell it was a bit humid?!
We had so much fun doing family pictures last year, we had to do it again!  I love how these turned out!  Now I just have to go through the 100+ that were taken and pick out my favorites to frame!
Love this sweet face!  He looks so BIG in this picture!
The Whole Gang!
There was a pretty big storm on Thursday, leaving lots of puddles on the street.  Max, Claire and their cousin had so much fun splashing around.

Already looking forward to next year's trip!  I am so lucky to have such wonderful in-laws and their extended families!  Many of Justin's cousins have kids around the same age.  Max and Claire were able to meet five little cousins this week!

Let the unpacking begin.. :(


  1. Claire's curls are adorable and the family pictures turned out great! I wish we had a beach nearby so we could do this too.
